Introduction

phyllobates's picture

 Hello!  For those of you out there wondering I am not a poison dart frog (user name), but rather a Junior chemistry major with a biology concentration and a psychology minor.   In addition, to my love of poison dart frogs (which has yet to result in an actual purchase) I have a beautiful beta fish who has almost managed to survive for an entire year (this is a HUGE accomplishment for me).  While I have always understood biology, particularly evolution, I cannot say the same for the English language or literature.  I am excited to take this class and use my love of biology to help cultivate a better understanding and appreciation for English.  I have very little knowledge about the development of stories and I wonder how the evolution of our society (introduction of money, technology, literacy distribution, values, copyright etc) has shaped this literary transformation.
